Business Wire---Hard to Treat Diseases Incorporated - HTDS - Announces: Meeting with T-19 Manufacturer and Tubercin FDA Testing

Hard to Treat Diseases Incorporated (Pink Sheets: HTDS) announces that consultants of the Company are meeting with a P-3 manufacturer and an FDA testing group this week. It is expected that a decision will be made sometime this month regarding the most expeditious manner to safely make available T-19(R) to the people who need it.

HTDS consultants are also meeting with representatives of a prestigious FDA approved testing facility located at a major US University to discuss the protocols, procedures, budgets and cost estimates for additional testing. The testing results to date have been provided by Dr. Richard Ishmael, M.D. of The Natcel, Dev. and Cancer Treatment Center of Oklahoma and Dr. Wei R. Chen, Ph.D. of The University of Oklahoma. Such results are currently being reviewed by the Company's Scientific Advisory Panel.

HTDS consultants are also meeting with an FDA approved P-3 manufacturer regarding T-19(R). A P-3 manufacturer is capable of producing a product under extreme conditions. Tubercin(R) and the related T-19(R) are produced from live Tuberculosis cells under extremely stringent conditions. Depending on the approval process required by the testing facility and the opinion of the Company's Scientific Advisory Panel, the delivery system for the T-19 will either be a nasal spray or an inhaler.

"The holistic market for T-19(R) as an immunostimulant has phenomenal potential," stated the President and CEO of HTDS, Mr. Colm J. King. "We intend to get T-19(R) on the market as fast as possible. Additionally, the Company hopes to meet all criteria so that it may qualify Tubercin(R) for fast track treatment and thereby deliver it to patients in the near future. Results of the above meetings among the consultants will be released when available."
